    cbennett505 :  I love the second one. The first is beautiful too, but I think the second is better on you!

    Fitted sheaths are my favourite style so I am biased towards that one. I think it’s beautiful! Personally I’m just not a fan of fuller skirts/ruffles. But both do look fabulous on you.

    cbennett505 :  There’s something about the dress that doesn’t scream bride to me and I don’t know why, maybe the colors or the top of the dress? I really much prefer the second combination set on you 🙂

    cbennett505 :  well i’m also getting married outside in the Hudson valley, and went with a fitted lace sheath….so that’s my vote! the corset and skirt IS fun, but i think you’d regret it if you didn’t stick with your original vision. at the end of the day, which FEELS more like your style? they’re both pretty – it can often be hard to say not to something pretty. but which one is really YOU? I’m guessing dress 1 since that’s what you envisioned.

    ETA: your critera was non-strapless, unique, romantic, and a little vintage. Dress one checks all those boxes, while Dress 2 checks…none.

    I love the second one, the first dress style you could easily wear for another event another time.

    Coin toss would be theo nly way to pick between those two exquisite options.  You look 100% perfect in both ( whichis the heart of your problem)

    I picked the first one, only because it’s so unique but honestly, they’re both amazing and you look amazing in both of them. So, it’s whatever one you feel most comfortable in, I guess.

    cbennett505 :  They both look absolutely stunning on you! I love the lace detail in the first one and that would definitely fit with the reception in the historic home. The other one looks more “bridal” and a lot of fun. Which one do you feel the best in? Are there any special feelings associated when wearing either dress? I don’t think you could go wrong with either one you choose!

    “non-strapless, unique, romantic, and a little vintage.”  Dress #1 – you nailed it! 

    Option 2 is cuute and fun, but I would worry that you would change your mind down the line, especially as your vision for the wedding that you described comes together with vintage, romantic touches.    

    As PP asked, how did you FEEL in each? Which one makes you picture walking through the garden to meet tha partenr of your dreams and say your vows in?

    Both are gorgeous! This was a tough choice. I honestly don’t think you could go wrong either way. I chose the second option because I like it just a little bit more than the first one, but I think the first would work better for your venue.

    cbennett505 :  The fitted dress on the left has a similar silhouette to my dress (mine had straps too), and I’m not big on ruffles, so that one gets my vote by default lol You do look beautiful in both options, though! Try picturing yourself in your venue and in the pictures… Which dress better matches the look you’re going for?
